Description Rust's Hall and Pacific Brewery. Rust's Hall destroyed by fire in 1898. Two images attached, sepia and black/white. In the January 6, 1888, edition of the Baker City Tribune, there is a drawing with same signs on building but from a different angle.

Henry Rust owned both of these buildings. Rust's Hall was used for the presentation of plays and music performances before the Baker City Opera House was built two blocks north in 1898.

Note that the Geiser Grand Hotel across the street to the south of the brewery had not been built yet.
